Currently I’ve been actually diving deep again into the great world of Martin Newell and [his 1980s band] the Cleaners from Venus. The songs are so nice, and I simply love the sonic universe that that music exists in. There may be a lot wealthy materials in that catalog. Blow Away Your Troubles (1981) is a good document and a basic. I additionally lastly simply bought the chance to see the current documentary made about Martin Newell referred to as The Jangling Man and I totally loved it. Been on a Flamin’ Groovies journey, too. All the time. It’s my life soundtrack. It retains giving itself again to me all anew. That band is every part.
So far as new stuff goes, I’ve actually been digging the brand new singles from each MGMT and the Lemon Twigs. MGMT have a brand new single out referred to as “Nothing to Declare,” which is kind of an excellent departure for them. The Lemon Twigs’ new single, “My Golden Years,” has been buzzing and bomping round in my cranium because it got here out, and it’s nice. I’m excited to listen to what they do subsequent. I’ve additionally been actually digging the Scout Gillet document, No Roof No Flooring. Her fashion is admittedly one thing else, I like it. “Gradual Dancin’” is my jam.
